These 15 hot new hotels are the ones we predict will make Travel + Leisure’s World’s Best Awards in the near future.

W St. Petersburg, Russia

8 of 16

The W St. Petersburg’s Spring 2011 opening marked the fashion-forward chain’s first foray into Eastern Europe and also brought a welcome dose of contemporary design to the city’s heart. Case in point: the 137 modern rooms are lit by Terzani disco ball–esque lamps and a Jacopo Foggini art installation. Now Russia’s new guard surveys the palaces of old from the hotel’s rooftop lounge, where the view extends to the Hermitage, just a five-minute walk from the hotel’s happening lobby.

From $550 per night; wstpetersburg.com.
